About Me:

Hello, my name is Nitrogen Nitrogen and I am a nonmetal.
I lived at two fifteen Birkewood Road
I was born in on August 8, 1772 in Scotland.

My family is the Nitrogen group. We have five valence electrons. My family includes two non-metals, two metalloids, and a metal. We are very stable elements in compounds. We also have potential toxicity. We are all solid at room temperature also except me, nitrogen.
I have seven protons, neutrons, and electrons. I have five electrons in my outer energy level.

Covalent Bonding
A covalent bond is when atoms share one or more pairs of electrons. To form a covalent bond you find a nonmetal atom that will help you and the other atom add up to eight electrons. Then you share the electrons. This type of bond only happens between nonmetal atoms. There are double, triple, and quadruple covalent bonds also. There are also non-polar and polar covalent bonds. A non-polar bond is a bond two of the same atoms bonding. A polar bond is a bond of two different non-metal atoms. I can make this bond because I am a non-metal. I could bond with three chlorines or a chlorine atom and an oxygen atom also. Another thing I could bond with is myself.

Ionic Bonding
An ion is an atom that has received electrons or given electrons away making the atom positive or negative. To determine if you give or receive electrons it is all based on which one is easier. If you are in groups 1, 2, or 13 you will give them away beacasue it is easier for you to do so. After this process you will be considered a cation. Cations are only metals and positive ions. For example, it would be Lithium positive 1 because it gave one electron away. If you are in group 15, 16, or 17 then you will receive electrons because that is what is easier. Then you get to be an anion. Anions only happen between non-metals and atoms that receive electrons. To determine if you are negative three, positive three, etc. you take how many electrons you gave away or received and put a positive sign or negative sign and the amount of electrons. For example, it would be Nitrogen negative three because it received three electrons. I can form an ion because I am a non-metal and not in group 18 or 14. Group 14 does not form ions because it can't decide whether to give or receive electrons and group 18 is perfect already. I could bond with aluminum and he would give me three electrons so he has a perfect outer energy level then I would have a perfect energy level. Then aluminum would be aluminum positive three and nitrogen negative three. An ionic bond is a bond between a non-metal and metal to make each one have a perfect outer energy level. This happens by giving electrons away or receiving them. I can form this bond because I am a non-metal and I'm not in group 18 or 14.

Metallic Bonding
A metallic bond is a bond is a bond formed between positively charged metal ions trying to get to the perfect outer energy level as usual. This bond only happens between metal atoms. The atoms in a metallic bond are lined up neatly. These bonds wxplain why metal conduct electricity, conduct heat, and are flexible. The electrons also move very freely thought out multiple metal atoms. I can't make this bond because I am a non-metal.


Friends, Please Join Me!

Ionic bonding or covalent. For ionic elements in group 1, 2, and 13 I can bond with. For covalent, any nonmetal is fine except the one's in group 18. I want to be friends with flourine because he is a non-metal and we could form a good covalent bond. I also want to form a covalent bond chlorine because they are a non-metal too. Aluminum would be good to becasue we mach up perfecly for an ionic bond. Potassium would be a good friend to because they're cool and they would make a good ionic bond. Sulfur would be good to make a covalent bond too because they are awesome.


I'm Aluminum7 and we could make a ionic bond. I'm in group 13 so it would work perfectly.
